I doubt it's going to be weapons, because I cannot imagine a way they would wrap Charity Corner around it. Unless they turn Granny into terminator and try to raise an army to fight her, I can't imagine how else that would work

I've been speculating with people about this on reddit and we all think that weapons is the most suitable, since people want to donate high rarity for best chances of good prizes, and BD has the most high rarity items at relatively low values. Food has gourmet and not too many at lower prices. Neohome/garden would fit, but very few items comparatively. While battledome fits best and would probably get the most items out of the circulation, you're right, the narrative would be tricky.

 

There are a few ideas I've seen:

  • Weapons buyback type thing. Would be fairly easy, but it could be considered too controversial/political? Idk, I'm not from the US and we've had weapons buybacks here that were very successful, but I can see why it may not go over well in the US.
  • Work it into a potential war/plot. We've seen JS are trying to have events constantly running. We haven't really had no event since January? We have AC soon, then what? Nothing until CC, unless there is a plot or project X comes up. There have been lots of theories that project X will have something to do with a new land as well as a game, so maybe a war will be involved? If there was a war, we'd be helping the war effort by donating weapons to help soldiers or something. 
  • JS don't bother trying to fit it into the narrative of charity that much and just go with BD stuff.

It'll be interesting. I know that I'm hoping for BD, since that is what I have hoarded the most of so far.

How wrap Charity Corner around weapons? Easy. This year we are going on a truce, no more war, donate your weapons so we can live in peace. BD is the most plausible choise for this year, they'll find a way to get around this fact and make it work out.

No more war? So the skirmish battles would be canceled while Charity Corner runs to fit with the story of why Granny wants weapons (because we're at peace)?

If TNT actually care about making sense, yes. I doubt though, they will just throw any story that fits in and may it be.

To suspend Skirmish Battles they should at least notice it is still going on, they probably don't.

I think they'd piss off too much of their userbase if they stopped the skirmish battles, so if they do weapons, those will probably stay. Maybe Granny could stockpile weapons to give to the poor neopets so they can participate in the battles like the rich ones do?

Ooh I hadn't even thought of that. They might even stop the skirmishes all together? Like you said, it  is the most plausible. 

 

Though it's in my best interest for it to be BD stuff since I've only been hoarding that stuff. Even if it wasn't plausible, I'd probably be trying to convince myself

 

ETA:  I like what kyloren said about letting poor neopets participating by donating. That works too.

I can't see the Granny dressed like Madonna with weapons going out her tits. :( I think TNT will find a way, though!

 

Anyway, I'm hoarding fornitures, because I can totally see the "the poor neopets finally got their homes but we need you to give them fornitures" bullshit.
